Go over there and kick her in the head... when she's out for the count grab your camera and run. J/K people...calm down.

Tell her you want her back and once you get the camera back leave her ass again. That would be funny.

Well, I went with the traditional lime green and so far it's been sweet and very enjoyable. I've had it for three days (three days where i've been around to ride) so far and put on almost 600 miles still breaking in the engine of course. Oh, almost forgot I also got geared out to match my bike got this sweet jacket that's white, lime green and black and says Ninja in the front. Went in to to purchase sildes and found out they have to cut the fenders which I refuse to do. Later that day a good friend of mine told me they make these sliders that have brackets that make it so you don't have to cut but I have yet to find those or see those.

Kicker... yes they do make what they call "no-cut" sliders. But we suggest to use the cut sliders when you can. There is tons of info on these things... just search key words like no-cut

Plus you can most of them from online places such as kneedraggers or speedwerks.

Further, on the gear thing! You go!

I REFUSE to be a squid!!! which is why I got everything in gear but pants those are on my to get list...

As for no-cut sliders and cut sliders I hear the fenders can do something called "spider cracks" if you cut and I question the strength of the no-cut sliders to regular cut sliders.

No-cut = No-good.

Do the cutting right and you'll be fine.

No cut sliders for the 636:

LP Sliders

My bike came with no-cuts and I haven't bothered to change them out, but I would also recommend the cut type instead.
